What will happen to my child during a tonsillectomy?
Tonsillectomy is a common procedure in children who suffer from chronic tonsillitis, infections, etc. The procedure does not take more than an hour and is done under the influence of general anesthesia. The surgery is done through the mouth and requires no stitches. The recovery process is not too long either. The healing process after the surgery takes about two weeks, and the child can get back to his normal life while following a few instructions from the doctor.
What are the results of a tonsillectomy?
Future possibilities of tonsillitis are eliminated by a tonsillectomy. This implies that there would be no further instances of infections or any related symptoms. For a couple of weeks after the surgery, there might be an uncomfortable pain in the throat, but it can be managed by painkillers and medication.
What are the alternatives to tonsillectomy?
In some cases, medication is prescribed to treat tonsillitis. Medicines like paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin can be given, but these can only help by moderating the symptoms. Even though they might help reduce the symptoms, they are not commonly prescribed as they take a long time to show effect. Also, they are not effective in treating tonsillitis or infections themselves.
Children's tonsils usually shrink as they grow up, and tonsillectomy is recommended by doctors after alternates like antibiotics, medication, and waiting for the tumors to shrink fail to show effect.
As the procedure removes the tonsils, any future recurrences of infections or tonsillitis are eliminated. Tonsillectomy is the sure shot treatment for tonsillitis and heals the problem from its root. Pristyn Care offers best-in-class services and has the best team of ENT doctors at your service.
